This bag is in good condition. There are areas with bead-loss, edge wear, and loose stitches. There are some missing tassels, but the remaining are good and intact. The backside has minor areas of staining, and there is a small hole which is approximately a quarter of an inch in size. The straps have two different beaded designs, which is original to the making of this bag. Acquired from a private collection in Kansas. The owner purchased this bag from collectors from Elgin, Illinois, who acquired it from a private museum that was closing in the 1960s. This bag has been lowered in price from $5,000 to $1,675, which is an amazing collecting opportunity.
